George F. White recognises that maximising value is the key element in reviewing water resources, and uses it as a firm basis in all types of appraisal. Using value as a driving force provides a clear focus to all the work that we undertake.
Water as an asset
A broad range of interests across commerce and society, need to understand the financial value of water as a separate resource.
Water as a liability
Flood incidents are becoming far more common and their impacts much greater. Anybody with an interest in property and business continuity needs to understand the increased risk and the impact on value.
Whether you consider water as an asset or as a liability - both require a clear understanding of the juxtaposition between the substance and its interaction with property.
Understanding the relevant factors that impact upon a water resource, and applying weight to those factors, are the essential elements of getting to grips with value.
